[cheers and applause] [laughter] hairball. [ laughter ] woodward, of course is the hand some redford half of woodward and bern styne. it goes back when he said the white house moved the goal post on the current sequester proceedings by suggesting tax increases inlew of cuts. the republicans agreed to spending cuts. a fair accounting of overall debt would allow them -- so the notion that obama was moving the goal post was less accurate that -- sorry. wanted to wake you guys back up.

. but at the white house, president obama's spokesman late any blame on the assad government. >> deeply skeptical of a regime that lost all credibility and we one the regime against making these kinds of charges as any pretax or cover for its use of chemical weapons. >> whether in fact they casualty's were caused by chemical weapon has not been verified. al jazeera asked a leading expert to examine the hospital video and accounts of the attack. his conclusion, the casualties were not consistent with syria's reputed stockpile of chemical agents. >> if i had to make a quick decision, i would take out any sort of nominal chemical warfare agent and i would focus more on the -- if it is a chemical warfare agent, it is not working very well. >> the have often accused the syrian military of using chemical weapons but this is the first time the government made the same accusation against them. a syrian government official said the attack would be reported to human rights organizations but did not indicate whether outside experts would be given free access to investigate the attack. become aer, iraq has r
this morning from the white house on these reports, peter? >> reporter: the latest word, bill, that the obama administration is deeply skeptical of the claims assad is making in syria because as press secretary jay carney says the assad regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the world but carney made crystal clear the president's position about chemical use, chemical weapon use in syria being a red line has not changed. >> the president clear when he said if assad and those under his command make the mistake of using chemical weapons or fail to meet the obligation to secure them, there will be consequences and they will be held accountable. >> reporter: we still don't know what the consequences would be because carney wouldn't tell us yesterday but he told us the president will talk about what is happening in syria with the leaders of israel, palestine and jordan before he heads back to washington. bill: one of the main topics on the trip. peter doocy live in washington. mart has that a bit more on that. martha? martha: these are not the first we've had out of syria. the rebels accuse
peace process and iran's nuclear peace program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. the
proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein, this is a big deal, and you're here on this show to prove it is a big deal. you would never come out this late if this was
to other staffing. there was no influx of excessive staffing when president obama came to the white house. and the dog walker she mentions is in reality the white house groundskeeper. cnn's dana bash attempted to follow up with bachmann about what he had said. the as a result, both women out of breath and a dramatic shift in topic. >> what i want to ask you about is the fact that you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster. >> you also made specific accusations about the president spending money that other presidents also made. >> the real issue is there are four americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with a secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> i think that's an important point. if you want to focus on that -- >> that's it. that's what's important. do you want to talk about dog handlers and there's four americans killed? >> congresswoman, you're the one who put it up. >> of course, t
in the obama white house as an economic top advisor. so we know that for the past three years, growth in america has fallen well below, really, what the congressional budget office, our experts, have predicted. these studies show our debt is hurting the economy now and that increased spending and more debt must end now. it cannot be contended any longer that it is good for america to borrow more and spend more. we cannot borrow more to spend more. somebody compared that to taking a bucket in one end -- the deep end of the swimming pool and filling it up and going to the shallow end and pouring it in. the borrow to spend and you drop some along the way, truth be known. we must grow the economy, not keep growing the government and certainly not keep growing the debt. so i believe we all know this. i think the american people know it. and we in congress have a responsibility to honestly confront this challenge and put our country on the right path. and, as we've learned, we actually don't have to cut spending. all we really need to do is allow the spending to increase, but allow it to in
to be investigated. the embassador echoed what president obama said. another key republican, mike rogers, the house intelligence chairman, was on cbs news this morning and said he thinks, it appears to him, chemical weapons were used but he's a former fbi official who wants to see forensic evidence. that's important for a republican lawmaker to underline saying we need evidence before we say chemical weapons were used. >> ed henry on a historic day in jerusalem. we look forward to your report tonight. >>> more about israeli u.s. relation from the director of center for strategic and middle east programs. man, people talk about these two men at adversaries and today they say there's not much daylight on iranian, the thanks and accolades and friendship and we're the best friends, it doesn't sound as if there's a problem. >> the optics are good. everybody wants this trip to be successful. there's a lot at stake for the president. a lot at stake for the israeli prime minister and they talked about no daylight between the u.s. and israel on iran but there's a difference in the language they're speaking
potentially at especially more horrific scenes than we have already seen in syria. >> bret: president obama talking about the possibility of the chemical weapons were used in syria. the house intelligence chairman mike rogers says there is a high probably now they were in fact used. president obama saying that president bashar assad should go. he has been saying that his days are numbered for 19 months. that is about 580 days. take a listen. >> it's not a question of when assad leaves. or if assad leaves. it's a question of when. he will leigh power. not a question of if. >> i am confident that assad's days are numbers. i think he must go and i believe he will go. >> the last one was today. >> if you go to the first time that he made the caug august 18, 2011, 2200 people died at that point in syria. now we're in excess of 70,000. it's one of the reasons i believe this will be forever a black mark on the obama administration. basically done nothing. the question he got today at the press conference to suggest that the u.s. hasn't done anything. the president pushed back hard on that but he w
he was disoriented so if you happen to see him, call police. >> president obama is making the first trip ever to israel. the promises he is making and the unexpected travel troubles he faces today. >> plus, politicians behaving very badly. a fistfight broke out in the house of farm element. >> a study finds a sharp jump in the number of autism spectrum. doctors explain the possible reason. >> rebound in jerusalem right now, one of his stops in the first visit to israel since taking office. the three-day trip is filled with promises of unwaivering support as the president tries to win over skeptical israelis. abc7 news reporter, katie marzullos joins us. >> president obama is deeply unpopular with many israelis who are not sure the united states is serious about defending the percent state. in two speeches this morning the president is assuring those people his administration will pursue a middle east peace deal. >> from a closed door meeting president obama and israeli president peres present a united front, a desire to keep israel safe and secure. >> this is a common vision uniting
many to recoil here in washington, particularly at senior levels of the obama administration to some degree i think it's propelled the white house towards a greater reliance on drones, intelligence operations, on the use of small special forces teams to target terrorist cells around the world as opposed to trying to do more traditional nation building and remaking of society. perform. >> woodruff: ravij chandrasekaran and michael gordon, thank you for helping us look back. >> pleasure to talk to you. ruch rough we are collecting your iraq war stories, your reflections and lessons learned. find out how the share those on our home page. again, the major developments of the day, car bombings and suicide blasts killed 65 people in baghdad on the tenth anniversary of the u.s. led invasion of iraq. pope francis formally took office and called for the church to defend the weak and protect the environment. and the u.s. rejected claims by the syrian government that rebels used chemical weapons. >> woodruff: another newshour colleague is on a reporting trip abroad. ray suarez is in ireland and

the president. >> no, i wasn't. i was the speaker of the house and that's why i say prayers for president obama and vice president biden every day. >> you don't want to be president. >> i don't want to be president. it's not anything i've ever thought about. >> is there anything you did during those 20 minutes? did you, you know, make it mandatory that everybody listen to polka or, i mean -- >> no, no, nothing. >> nothing? >> just kept my eyes focused on my job. >> free cigarettes? nothing at all? nothing. >> for happy hour? nothing going on? >> no. >> okay. thank you so much, mr. speaker. >> nice to see you. >> i appreciate you taking the time. we also asked speaker boehner about how he as a father felt about what happened at sandy hook. we'll have more from our interview with speaker boehner later in the show. >>> the last time the miami heat lost, hillary clinton was still secretary of state. putting the 23-game winning streak into perspective. that's our sports lead and that's next. uhh, it's my geico insurance id card, sir. it's digital, uh, pretty cool right? maybe. you know why i pulled
: but look what president obama did when it came to obamacare. >> that's exactly right. and in the white house, begged him not to do obamacare and made her walk the plank and she didn't get reelected. that was a hill he was willing to die on and let members of his party die on. what's different this time the 94 assault weapons ban, we have ten years of evidence that the relative effectiveness of it and what it showed was that it had minimal to no effect in preventing these kinds of crimes so people are taking a look at this and saying, why should i vote for something that last time around was useless and ineffective and actually unnecessary infringement on the second amendment. >> megyn: do they really believe. are they believes that it would make a difference? show out one other thing, there is a theory among some that this was the plan all along. they knew this part would never get through and now, this allows those in the senate to look more reasonable when they cast a vote in favor of background checks and remainder of the legislation which pales in comparison to the assault weapons

of all, the president, president obama's, credibility is very, very critical. they is said from the white house podium that any use from the chemical weapons would be a red line. presumably this would be the trigger for more american involvement. as you know, craig, u.s. has been behind other allies, britain and france pressing on the u.s. to do more. we have done human. aid, nonlethal aid, helped to the combatance, but not what they have been pleading for. which is more weaponry. so there's a lot of pressure on the white house to become more involved in syria. this is skoesten shl because they have to wonder about what will follow the civil war. if assad is going to fall, will it be another vacuum like the vk um that has taken place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the real fear, if they have total collapse. al qaeda elements increasingly large roles in the opposition. and a

in syria. president obama has said that that is his red line. is this conflict overshadowing the visit? >> reporter: we have to be very careful when we talk about chemical weapons. when the white house talks about chemical weapons and red lines, what we believe them to mean are the very potent chemical weapons we know to be in their arsenal, vx, mustard and sarin gas. no indication those have been used and no confirmation that chemical weapons were actually used in these attacks yesterday by allegedly by the rebels and the regime. the white house has said there's no evidence. but despite that, this obviously raises the fears of their use of them falling into the wrong hands, so while the trip won't be overshadowed, it certainly highlights the need to discuss this while here in israel. >> all right. alex marquardt in jerusalem, the world will be watching. thank you for that. >>> we also have some breaking news to tell you about from south korea. a possible cyberattack has paralyzed the computer networks of some major banks and broadcasters. >> the outages hit simultaneously boosting spe
